Blue Asian Style Living Room
Featured Products in This Gallery

Cultural Flair

Mix traditional and Asian elements into your design scheme for an elegant yet eclectic look. In this casual living room designer Jane Ellison added a bold cobalt-blue color along the back wall to pull out the muted blues in the sofa detail, as well as the hues in the porcelain pieces. Oriental blue and white wares were developed in China in the 14th century, and by the 17th century the pieces were considered prized possessions and collected by European royalty. These porcelain pieces, along with the bamboo shade, Japanese tatami mat and bronze accessories, pull in familiar Asian elements while adding some unexpected cultural flair.
